OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTMENT
Our Commitment to Continuous Improvement
We look for continuous improvement, regularly reassessing sustainability goals and strategies based on changing circumstances, technological advancements, and best practices.
At the Coffeeshop our coffee is roasted daily across each of our roasteries in Geelong VIC, Lisarow NSW, Sunshine Coast QLD together with our roasting partners.
We share our knowledge of green bean sourcing as well as roasting curves and cupping. We hold a central repository of samples from each roast with exhaustive testing of each coffee in line with a quality assurance program.
Each local roastery has its own cupping room, state of the art roasting and mapping equipment, and roasters that have decades of combined roasting experience.
BlendCo promotes sustainable practices throughout the coffee supply chain, from farming and sourcing to processing, packaging, and distribution with all our products.
We are committed to sourcing coffee beans from farmers and cooperatives that follow sustainable agricultural practices. We support farmers who use environmentally friendly methods, such as shade-grown or organic farming, and providing fair prices to ensure the economic viability of coffee farming communities.
We are working to reduce our carbon footprint by implementing energy-efficient practices, utilising renewable energy sources, and optimizing transportation and logistics to minimize emissions. Our commitment to reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials ensures we only sell products that are compostable or in recyclable materials and minimise single-use plastics.
We focus on improving the livelihoods of coffee farmers and workers by promoting fair labour practices, providing access to education and healthcare, and supporting community development projects. We collaborate with industry partners, NGOs, and certification organizations (e.g., Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, UTZ) to uphold sustainability standards and achieve recognized certifications.
